Braids for Days | New Cumberland Senior Photographer

Dutch Braid on blond haired girl


As a New Cumberland Senior Photographer, I see lots of beautiful locks on the other end of my camera. Lately, the level of beautiful hair has been amazing. LONG locks are IN! Braids are IN.

Braiding hair has been around for thousands of years, and has been a big part of many cultures worldwide.

Gone are the days of simple, straight braids. Just adding a braid or two to your look can change it in a variety of ways! They can be so versatile. Fishtail braid your hair and pair it with a leather jacket and voila, the perfect edgy look. Add the same braid to a white flowy dress and you have a cute, summery, boho look. You can dress up an outfit with a swept-up braided ‘do, or throw it up in a braided bun for a quick and cute on-the-go fix.

The possibilities are endless and experimenting is what can make braiding so fun. Get together with friends sometime and have a “braid party” taking turns doing each other’s hair and trying new braids out! Braiding has been a communal activity for thousands of years, and can be the center of fun times (and great hair!)


Waterfall, Fishtail, Boho, Dutch Pig Tails and a French into a ponytail. Tons of options and beauty. But how do you do them? Let alone, how do you do them on yourself?

I’m so glad that you asked. I’m hosting a braid class on October 28 at 2pm with my own hair dresser, Angie Shuler. Models, braids and snacks, oh my! Want to learn how to do these beautiful braids? Join me and my long lock friends to learn. Can’t wait to see you there!

    I’m blessed with a boyfriend who enjoys braiding for me! And I kept my hair long for him to experiment the different braids! I think he will love learning to make the different braids from you~ReplyCancel
